I was wondering - I was born in France - may be in France they had german in the military since they love loosing wars and surrender but I was wondering if we had german in the US Army during world war 2 - did they have german in the english Army?
The enemy is within and even our own army does not ahve the courage to acknowledge that THE ENEMY IS WITHIN.
FREAKING POLITICAL CORRECTNESS!!! I AM SICK OF THAT.
And soo soo sad. A 21 year old PRAGNET woman, just coming back from Irak, DIED YESTERDAY BECAUSE WE LET MUSLIM - THE ENEMY - IN THE US ARMY!!!
THIS HAS TO STOP!
THE INSANITY HAS TO STOP!!! WE ARE AT WAR AND WE CARE MORE ABOUT THE ENEMY THAT FOR OUR OWN MILITARY.
THIS HAS TO STOP!!!
My grandfather was one generation removed from germany and served in europe.
We had Japanese-Americans in the army, but put them in the European theater.
Hitler’s brother was in the US Navy...in the Pacific theater, I believe.
I know what you’re saying though, and I agree.
And we had Japanese
Actually, we probably did have Germans in the US Army. Japanese too.
But we didn’t have any Nazis in the US Army.
There were a mumber of native Germans who served in the US military in WW2. The most famous was Henry Kissinger (OK, he was Jewish, but still German).
Seeing that the US population in some states was almost 1/3 - 1/2 German, it’s a good bet.
Ah yes... French Surrender Monkeys.
Third Infantry Division, from North Africa to Italy, Southern France to Nuremberg.
The dirty little secret is that Americans of German descent are the largest minority population in the United States. How come nobody knows this? Because we aren't anything but Americans, first-, -last, or anything else.
I think some are missing the larger picture here. No one is advocating banning Arabs from military service, but Muslims on the other hand is a political ideology as well as a religion. They do not believe in separation of church and state.
We also had functioning taboos which progressives’ political correctness has destroyed. Without taboos which establish patriotism’s ideals which allow the soldiers to manage the traitors in their midst, we get Islamokillers like Hassan in high positions where they can do great evil because political correctness prevents calling thejihadi what he is, a soldier of the enemy serving the demon allah.
True. Eisenhower is said to have stated before he set foot on German soil after the surrender “never thought an Eisenhower would come back here after 25 years”.
If anyone read (or saw) Band of Brothers, the US Army caught a couple of Americans of German descent who fought for the SS.
Of course, we all know what Lt. Spears did to them (wink)
A lot of people of german descent in the midwest at that time. My Grandfather was born in Wisconsin and lived in Michigan when he shipped out to Europe.
The US had interment camps for the German and Japanese in the WWII. I don’t think that’s a good idea, though. Conservatives fight for color-blind policy, both positive (against affirmative action) or negative (against discrimination) versions.
Another dirty secret is the fact there were also German internment camps in the USA.
You point is taken, though.
The japanese who served were desperate to prove that they were loyal Americans, and they served heroically.
We’ve lost the ability to tell the difference between people who love America, and people who hate it. You’re not allowed to notice that the haters hate us. “Are you impugning their patriotism?” Yes, I am.
Why didn’t anyone take notice of the fact that this guy hated America? They didn’t want to single him out as a muslim? Fine, I get that. How about singling him out as a guy who hated America, and wanted the jihadists to win? How about singling him out as a freak who got excited when a maniac attacked an American recruiting station?
My family is part German. I had a great uncle who was killed when his boat carrying supplies to Russia from the U.S. was sunk by a German U-Boat.
You are confused. Ethnicity or ancestry has much less of a tie on someone’s loyalties than their religion. Islam is a religion, a belief system, independent of someone’s genetics and ancestry. Look at the wannabe white terrorists who have taken Muslim names as an example of the flaw in your rant.
As for the military being multicultural. Its been that way for a long time.
“Thats not the problem. It is a very good thing that the military is multicultural. The problem is when it indulges in multiculturism!”
The fifth column formed out of the unholy alliance between radical Islam and the American left is now entrenched in the White House and throughout our government. And in matters like the Muslim jihadist Major Hasan our military is its captive.
The Fort Hood massacre is the first of the preventable atrocities we have been warning about on our websites since 9/11 the atrocities which are apparently necessary for Americans to wake up to the threat that confronts us. We have a vast internal threat in this country in the form of this unholy alliance between the anti-American Left and radical Islam whose Muslim Brotherhood network extends through our universities, our government and our military. It is politically incorrect to recognize this fact. http://newsrealblog.com/2009/11/06/our-brain-dead-country/
You got it right, friend. We left Germany behind when the boat left the dock in Hamburg. Plus, many, many Massachusetts Puritans are of Anglo and Saxon descent. THIS is the shining city on a hill. Not Germany with all of its problems...
Reply meant for orig poster , sorry.
Have you been to Arlington Cemetery? I have. When I last went, I saw a number of Muslim symbols carved on the graves of young men who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan. If I remember the section, I would tell you. I was surprised to see these symbols. I am not saying there were hundreds but there were enough to make me remember.
An extremist religion did not kill these young men yesterday. A crazed gunman, who should not have been serving and should have been removed from service, did.
There were so many Germans in my home town that if they didn't serve there would have been no army.
Sure we had Germans in the US Army. They just were not running around giving the Fascist salute and trying to persuade their fellow soldiers to become Nazis.
Yes, that is badly put. We had German Americans, but we didn’t have any Nazis. We didn’t enroll Nazis in our army and send them to medical school. We did not allow them to enlist and then send them to fight Nazis in Germany.
There were a large number of German born soldiers in the American Army during World War II. Most of them were Jews. I worked for one. Kissinger was another. The guy I worked for had a thick Katzenjammer accent and I remember having lunch with some customers and he spoke about his experiences during “the war”. You could have heard a pin drop. Of course, he spent the war in the Pacific and in context, it became clear what he was talking about.
BTW, he started his career working for Norden some years after the war and his boss was a REAL German who spent the war designing bombsights for the Luftwaffe. He claimed he had a Norden bombsight on his desk during the entire war and wasn’t very impressed with it.
Some famous Germans aided the Allies, for instance Marlene Dietrich did USO tours and never set foot in Germany after 1939.
Great man, FDR. Progressive, you see. Great man.
We also had a media that was generally on our side of the conflict.
[they love loosing wars]
Did you mean to search for: they love losing wars
Thank you :-)
And again, I truly apologize for saying german - I should have said NAZIS.. stupid me.
But what drives me nuts, is that it seems that THEY KNEW at least since 6 months that the guy was not a America lover.. they KNEW and did NOTHING! And now 12 great Americans are dead.
PC will kill us all.
Germans in the US Army, The Reihardts, 2 Generals that commanded Infantry Divisions in Germany. Eichenburger a 3 star in the Pacific, the list is long I’m sure. Gen. Bolte too. And that other German Guy, The Commander in Chief Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Excellent way to put it.
There is room in the US Army for Jordanians, Egyptians, etc, PROVIDED there is strong evidence that they are NOT active Muslims. To the extent that somebody is a Muslim, then they are bound by their religion to be the enemy of all who choose not to submit to Islam.
Evidence that somebody is an active Muslim should be treated the same as evidence that somebody is an active member of the Communist Party, or a neo-Nazi organization.
It is probably overboard to deny Muslims the chance to server, but to allow Anti-American Muslims, who rant against the US publicly, to remain in service, is simply insane.
I'm pretty sure we had Nazi sympathizers in the Army. My father told me he had one Italian-American in his unit who would go on and prate about axis victories early in the war. (My father joined the NYNG in 1940 and was scheduled to be discharged early in 1942. How'd that work out for you, Dad?)
I understand people's desire to ban Muslims from military service. I believe it is a religion of hate that preaches murder and slavery. But we can not compromise who we are. If we do we have lost. We should do a better job of vetting the people we trust with our safety. The political correctness must stop. Military members who speak out against their country and mission are not fulfilling their oath to obey lawful orders. Obviously, they are not supposed to follow orders blindly, but when you root against your country you have no business in any position in our government. But we can not usurp our constitution for convenience, no matter how tempting. We have enough people trashing the constitution already.
And also General Carl A. Spaatz, from a German immigrant family, commander of the Eighth Air Force in World War II.
US soldiers served safely shoulder to shoulder with Ethnic Japanese and Germans because they where not in a sworn death cult.
My great grandfather came to America from Italy in 1913. He worked as a coal miner and small farmer in central Illinois When the war started, the FBI came to his house and seized a table radio with a shortwave band his kids had given him for his birthday and that he used to listen to opera, along with an old shotgun and a pair of binoculars.
He sent two sons to the war. One came back with his insides messed up after another guy jumped feet first into the hole where he was taking cover during a Japanese air raid. Then the military lost track of him and reported him to the family as M.I.A., until a couple of months later he turned up in a hospital stateside. The other one came home in a box, killed on the Cotentin penninsula seven days after D-Day.
